In order to address Living Building Challenge’s Water Petal, EcoBiblioteca has to reach a zero water level of extraction from public utilities. The water management concept regarding EcoBiblioteca assures that the water needed for daily use is taken from unconventional sources :

  • Groundwater, extracted from well has been tested and proven to be healthy – used as potable water source;
  • Rainwater / Stormwater – collected from the roof and used for non-drinking purposes;
  • Blackwater (water used by lavatories and toilet) – treated and re-used inside the same system.

This innovative MEP project is signed by CUNDALL, Romania Green Building Council Gold Member, through the work of Engineers David Clark and Vassilios Giannakos.
